heart smiles - Any I time I see that click on a developing writer's face, that moment that he or she gets it -- how to replace a vibrant verb with one that just holds a place in a sentence, how to build a description with details that matter to that writer, how to write, write, write in a voice that writer discovers and practices -- that makes my heart smile. Here's a quote I read recently in Louise DeSalvo's _Writing As a Way of Healing: How Telling Our Stories Transforms our Lives_ -- DeSalvo quotes Wayne Muller's _Legacy of the Heart_, in which he says that writing helps us to "cultivate those qualities of the heart and spirit that are available to you in this very moment" because "your life is not a problem to be solved but a gift to be opened." That quote makes my heart smile, and I remember it during the day when the moments of life build up, when I get frustrated, when things don't make sense: My life is not a problem to be solved but a gift to be opened.
